What causes an entry in primary DNS zone to not respond?
Posted on 2010-11-30
I have a CNAME record in my primary DNS zone that doesn't seem to resolve from anywhere, even though it was added at least 24 hours ago, and has a low TTL record.
I'm running bind-9.3.6-4.P1.el5_4.2 on CentOS 5.5
I simply get an "unknown host" message when trying to ping the FQDN/CNAME entry.
If I ping the corresponding server/host entry that holds the "A" record that the CNAME points to, it responds accordingly.
Not sure what I'm missing here.
